...the party. Even though Spurs outplayed Swansea it took two pieces of free-kick magic from Christian Eriksen to rescue a point from their visit to Wales.
...coco. While the progress of Erik Lamela continues standard Spurs failings appear as they snatch a draw from the jaws of victory against Monaco in the Europa League.
...cost England yet again. It was never going to be the so called gamble of Lancaster's starting XV that would cost England in their second group match.
...Show. Spurs new Europa League group campaign got off to an unfortunate start but then one player may have answered some questions, another just enhanced a growing reputation, while another was himself.
...another Yorkshire legend gone. The youngest and probably hardest and bravest man to play test cricket has died aged 84. “The start of the cricket season was the sound of leather on Brian Close”
..penalties. In his attempt to surpass Bobby Charlton as record goal scorer for England, Wayne Rooney had to be handed the easiest way to do so with a couple of penalties, that sum him up these days.
...buy. Pochettino told us all, Levy included, Spurs needed to add more players, as if anyone has needed telling after the first four games of the new league season. He didn't even get a Rasiak.
...leaders. How's that for a positive spin on another mediocre Spurs performance to start the season as they draw away to Leicester City.
...out someone to replace the kids. The kids were alright, the kids were winning the first home game of the season against Stoke, it's just Pochettino had nothing to replace the kids with.
...whimper. Spurs started off the new Premier League season off in a fitting style, after an exceptionally unexciting off-season this game was the perfect match.
...series? England have convincingly won the first test match of their last two series only to roll over and capitulate, after their 169 run victory in the Ashes opener can they stop the Aussies at Lord's?
...bowling. Ex-Aussie paceman Glenn McGrath knows a bit or too about cricket, about bowling, about being damn good at it and about having a little dig at England before an Ashes, sledging for want of a better word.
...Bell, Broad and Anderson. The cricket fan who stumped up what was probably a decent whack might have actually got their money's worth in the one day series between England and New Zealand.
...he won the Tour? As Chris Froome crossed the line on the final two stages of this years Critérium du Dauphiné it's the happiest I think I've seen him on a bike since his Tour de France victory in 2013.
...the results. It is after all a result based business and that's what Roy's England managed against Slovenia to go unbeaten in qualification in the season after that miserable World Cup.
